Stowaway on Vacation


No trip to Tybee Island is complete without first a visit to the famous Crab Shack where their logo is “Where the elite eat in their bare feet”. Mom and dad have been going here for years – much longer than they would like to admit because it would give away their age – snorts. You can eat ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ in nature near the water amidst the wondering cats that wonder the grounds.  Notice the pretty kitty in the picture to the right.  That’s one of the cats that wonder around while you are eating.  They don’t even beg for food… well they haven’t with mom/dad.  hhmm – maybe because mom/dad make the food disappear too quickly.  I’ll have to check into this.


This picture to the left is where you walk up to request a table. They were still decorated for pirate fest and it looks like one of the mateys didn’t make it past the gator – PLOL (piggy laughing out loud).

Mom and dad highly recommend this restaurant to newcomers or oldcomers. It’s a place to let down your hair, kick off your sandals and snarf down some excellent food. And if you know my mom/dad, they are creatures of habit. They always get the same meal when they go there – with the exception of maybe an appetizer or soup.



But before I talk about that, I have to tell you about a little stowaway they had. I can’t say that I’m surprised because I helped the little fellow jump in their suitcase – snorts. What? He wanted to go to the beach and he hadn’t seen the humans in a while. It was all in good fun.

So mom/dad found him all hidden in their suitcase so of course they had to rescue him. He was so thirsty from being hidden for the long four hours so he had to get a drink from dad’s soda at the restaurant. And of course after a potty break, he said he was extremely hungry. So mom/dad let him look at the menu so he could order first… you know being famished and all.



He ordered a huge platter of steamed food. I’m not sure who was more shocked when it came – us or the waitress – when he looked at it and said, “That’s mine, where’s ya’lls?” The little booger.

Mom and dad told him he couldn’t eat it all in one setting – my goodness he would be a boulder and unable to ride in the Smart car back home if he did. Upon that reasoning, he decided to share his feast with mom/dad.



There was potatoes, corn, crab legs, Jonah crab, sausage, shrimp and mussels. Mom described it in one word – delicious. They also had key lime pie but dad made it disappear so fast that mom didn’t get a chance to even take a picture of it!

After that mountain of seafood, mom and dad decided to take Bashful for a walk around the restaurant. I’ll tell you for a moment they thought they were down under visiting our good friend Fozzie at Of course, hers are bigger – snorts. But they were still scary and oh so close for picture taking. And yes, they are real my friends. Bashful got scared and hid back in mom’s pocket. He’s so shy.

They would actually let you feed these gators hanging out in the pond. Mom didn’t get a picture but there was actually a sign hung up that stated, “Do not feed your children to the alligators. They may make them sick.” Snorts.

I hope you enjoyed these – more to come later!

Pirate Fest at Tybee Island, Georgia


Tybee Island – mom/dad’s home away from home.  They LOVE that beach.  They have been going to Tybee for years now and it just feels natural to be there partaking and having fun with all things beach.  They’ve met so many people over the years.  Hopefully one day when they retire to the good life, they want to spend their senior moments at the beach walking hand to hand causing havoc (you gotta know mom/dad and the trouble they get into at places unchaperoned – snorts).

This is actually the beach they are planning on visiting later on in the month – without moi might I add.  One day hopefully soon, I will get to put my hooves into the ocean as well and see what it’s all about.  But I digress.  This post is not about me but about Pirate Fest at Tybee Island, Georgia.

The Tybee Island Pirate Fest started in 2005 and has been going strong every year.  This year it is scheduled October 10-13th, 2013.  It is so cool!  There’s going to be a parade of pirate ships and pirates that will go down Butler Street to the beach.  And, there is the thieves market where you can shop to your hearts content for everything pirate.   AND to start everything off there’s even a Buccaneer Ball at a wonderful restaurant called The Crab Shack (which mom/dad highly recommend).  Fun, food and costume contests all with the crowning of the 2013 King and Queen to kick off the swashbuckling weekend.

To buy tickets or get more information, check their web site out at

Here’s also a flyer of the good time.  I sent them my pirate picture… you know just to let them know that I’m all about being a Pirate.  Heck, you can call me Captain Bacon 🙂
